Dr. Sarah Nicolson:

Dr. Sarah ("Sally") Nicolson grew up in the D.C. area with lots of animals to care for including dogs, cats, rats, mice, turtles, gerbils, lizards, chickens, goats and horses.  Her eclectic career has included earning a Master's in Marine Biology, teaching aerobic exercise, and working as an accountant prior to attending Cornell University and receiving her DVM degree in 2000. She worked at another animal hospital for two years before taking time off to have her first child. She started work at Farmington Animal Hospital as a relief vet in 2003 and later came on staff permanently. She is married with a 9 year old son and twin 3 year old daughters.

She also shares her home with two cats and a lovable mutt dog.  Her father always told her to find something she loves to do and then find a way to make a living at it.  Veterinary medicine fits the bill perfectly—allowing her to raise her family and also spend time helping furry critters and the people who love them.
